“Hey! That’s MY Fish!”
At a quick first glance you might expect the title comments to be coming from the overly excited looking blue heron. But if you look closely in the lower left corner you will see the original owner of the fish was in fact a cormorant.
The cormorant is the bird that first caught the fish but the GBH is in current possession so I guess that makes it his…at least he sure thinks it’s his. 🙂
Nice catch, Phil!
Thanks much, glad you liked it!
That is hilarious! Great photo!
They were funny out there for sure! Thanks for looking Vicky.
Great shot 🙂
I appreciate you checking it out, thank you!
I’m not sure I would want to take a fish away from a bird with a beak that size, but still …………!
I wouldn’t want either of these guys really mad at me, but definitely not the GBH. That sharp beak would go right through my leg. Yikes!
Was the cormorant cussing?
You heard it from there?!? Yes indeed he was. 🙂
He looks proud of himself in that shot.
That GBH stole a couple of fish and seemed quite delighted with himself. 🙂
There are some really good built in advantages to being on the bigger side in the Marsh.
Oh absolutely. Plus the GBH, even being a larger bird, can move faster both on land and in quick take offs. The cormorants need more runway.
